Video: Rethinking Climate Risk

Restoring the Sciences

J. Scott Turner

Why do we have a “climate emergency”? Is it real? Or is it a fantasy?

Judith A. Curry, one of our nation’s most prominent climate scientists, takes a sober look at the risks posed by a changing climate, how we assess the risks, the uncertainties, and the likely damage from the determined push to make “climate” a “climate emergency.”

This event features Judith A. Curry, Professor Emerita of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech, author of Climate Uncertainty and Risk: Rethinking our Response, and President of the Climate Forecast Applications Network. Joining us as co-host for the webinar is Kathryn Kelly, President of Delta Toxicology, Inc., and co-chair of the National Association of Scholars’ Nevada Chapter.
